Over the last couple of day i sold both the Yamaha Passola and the Puch Magnum X. Now I've got a bit more room to work on the Peugeot and Tomos. Plus with the money from the sales I've ordered a race crank and variator for the peugeot.

After messing about for hours trying to get the E50 to run and idle and fixing numerous air leaks. I decided to disassemble it to find the source if the problem. The first thing i noticed when i removed the flywheel was that it had been rubbing on the lighting coil and cut through some of its windings. Im pretty sure this wouldn't stop the bike running but i will investigate further. Secondly i discovered that slot in the flywheel that accepts the keyway on the crankshaft has been elongated which may well have affected to timing. Looks like a new lighting coil and flywheel is needed.

While i had the engine off i thought id have a look at the stock exhaust. Unfortunately the vogue exhaust doesn't have a screw cap like the one on the 103. So i couldn't easily open it up to derestrict it. Then i realised i still had the old Tomos Leo-Vince pipe. So i offered it up and i think it might just work. It'll need a new bracket but it even clears the pedals.
